We bought Belmont Bridge Fisheries at Swadford Street in 1986 and began serving really good takeaway fish & chips. In 1989, we extended and modernised the premises to provide a first class traditional fish and chip restaurant and takeaway.

Now all we needed was a new name to reflect the success of our growing business. The answer came from one of our customers who suggested we use our founder Jean Ritson's middle name of "Lizzie" and combine it with what we wanted the restaurant to be - "busy". And so with a little poetic licence the Bizzie Lizzie's we know and love today was born.

By combining the finest ingredients with hard work and our passion for making people happy, we gained an enviable reputation and in 1999 won the National Fish & Chip Awards, with visitors travelling from far and wide to taste our award winning Fish & Chips.
